courtesy of Australian Cemeteries Index



ROSS - MUIR. At the Methodist Church, Ravenshoe on Saturday, August 8, a very pretty wedding took place, when Ethel Marie, daughter of Mrs. S. E. Muir, Ravenshoe, was united in the holy bonds of matrimony with Henry Francis, second son of Mr. and Mrs. Ross, Malanda. The bride, who was given away by her brother, Mr. F. Muir, looked charming in a gown of white angel skin lace over satin, made on classical lines and featuring bishop sleeves. Her veil was confined with a wreath of orange blossoms, and she carried a bouquet of white watsonia and stocks. Miss Phyllis Davis, cousin of the bride, attended as bridesmaid. Her dress was of pink lace and georgette, with hat and shoes en suite. Her bouquet was of rose colored sweet peas. The Rev. Lanham, of Herberton, was the officiating minister. Mrs. Davis presided at the organ and Mr. J. Guy was best man. The reception after the ceremony was held in the School of Arts, when Mrs. Muir, mother of the bride, received her guests, in a frock of floral crepe-de-chine, with hat and coat to match. More than 40 guests were present.

Woman's Body Found

THIS MORNING.
The dead body of an old age pensioner, named Mrs. Kolass, was found in the back room of her residence, which is behind Messrs. Moran and Co.'s butcher shop, opposite the Massey Harris Ltd. It appears that an employee of the butcher shop, named Ted Keilly, was in the yard washing his horses when he became aware of a very disagreeable odour. He mentioned the matter to his employer, but both came to the conclusion that it must have been the water. At about 11.45 a.m. Keilly walked info the back room and there found, stretched out upon the floor, the dead body of the woman, in an advanced state of decomposition. The Police were advised and the body removed to the morgue, where a post mortem was held. The deceased was last seen alive on Saturday last. Her husband, it is supposed, poisoned himself some time back. She was lying fully clothed on the floor of the bedroom. Her head and shoulders were under the bed.

At the time of her death her parents were recorded as Michael MADDIN and Elizabeth FLEMING and this date of death has not been verified by the author. Given that Ellen started drinking about 1911 and that it became a serious problem later in life, the details about her death could be less than accurate. The author has not been able to locate the place of burial.
